Principal: Mr. George Gillett
It is truly an honor to be the principal of Boulder Creek Elementary School. I can already tell that it is a unique and special place, and I am incredibly excited to be a part of it. I believe wholeheartedly that every student deserves a quality education and I will work collaboratively with all stakeholders to that end.
I have experience teaching elementary and middle school across Colorado and Oregon. For the past three years, I have served as the Assistant Principal of Spencer Butte Middle School in Eugene, Oregon.
My wife Molly has been both a building level and district level administrator for the last seven years. Together we have two children, Olivia (7) and George III (2). We decided to relocate to Arizona to be closer to our family.
I am thankful to have this opportunity to support the students, staff, and families at Boulder Creek Elementary School. I believe in the great work that has already been done and look forward to adding to the further development of our students. Together we will work towards new heights.
I look forward to immersing myself in our school community. I believe my responsibility is to put our teachers in the best possible position to succeed, and they, in turn, will do the same for our students. I look forward to meeting all of you.

Assistant Principal: Ms. Marcy Christner
I am thrilled to serve the Boulder Creek community as the Assistant Principal this year. It was a true pleasure to come to Boulder Creek last year as the Gifted Specialist. I have enjoyed getting to know our students and the community! I am excited about what this year will bring as we work together to ensure each student has access to a high quality and rigorous learning experience.
I have worked in elementary schools for over 15 years, and I have taught all grade levels from kindergarten to sixth grade. For the last eight years, I have been a Gifted Specialist, working closely with gifted and honors students and their teachers. About three years ago, I decided to return to school to complete a master's degree in Educational Leadership. Last December, I graduated from Northern Arizona University and am thrilled to be moving forward and gain experience as an administrator at Boulder Creek.
Originally from Tucson, I am a devoted Wildcat. My husband and I met at the University of Arizona and have been married for over 20 years. We have two boys, Drew (17) and Nick (15). Drew attends CREST at Paradise Valley High School and is a senior. Nick is a sophomore and attends the Arizona Agribusiness & Equine Center of Paradise Valley.
Boulder Creek Elementary School is an amazing school, and I am looking forward to supporting the students, teachers, and community. The Boulder Creek PTO has amazing events planned for the year ahead, and I am excited to join our families as we build a strong community that focuses on our students and celebrates this amazing learning environment.
